    Pros

    The people and culture cannot be understated. The appreciation across teams, the leadership focus on the people, the process improvements to keep people at the top of importance are all key. Perks, benefits, food, fun, pay are all good.

    Cons

    Vacation policy isn’t as good as other SF/Bay Area tech companies.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the focus on people, and look into the vacation policy especially when compared to SF, other tech, and other gaming companies.

    Product Manager Interview

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at Glu Mobile.

    Interview

    Applied online. After a week with no response, I reached out to their recruiter. He got back to me a few days later and scheduled a 1:1 phone interview with the hiring manager for the next week.

    It was mostly an execution interview. Light on prioritization and communication/behavioral questions. One or two questions about game economy and monetization design. No specific questions about the product.

    Throughout the interview, it seemed to me that the hiring manager was asking rote questions and was looking for specific sorts of answers. At the same time, he seemed unsure what I would be doing in this role. These are red flags to me.

    Anyhow, I highly recommend to applicants at this stage to rehearse something staid. You probably won't get any points for authenticity or original thinking. Go for a safe answer.

    UPDATE: After three weeks, they finally got back to me. Seems they changed the role and went with someone else.
